, but the primary utilities keep trashing our roads and not fixing them. when i looked at the presidio, created the infrastructure group over there, and had some sense of how we have to maintain our infrastructure and our roads. one of the things that we don't have here is we don't have a schedule. even though dbw will want to do whatever they want to do they have no control over comcast or pg&e. when looking at our vehicles, our cars and trucks that ply our roads, there are certain areas where we have had again and again pedestrians colliding with their vehicles and dying. some of the hotspots we have been trying to do something. but the city and county of san francisco, is known for many pedestrians dine on the street. we have not had a hearing. we have had talk. some of the supervisor said we are going to do this and that but we have not had a hearing, i really good hearing where everybody's put on notice. some advocates come from time to time. i don't have too much time to waste but i hope that in 2013 we have some goals and do the right thing. thank you very much. >> thank you. next spe

. i want to name a couple in particular, doyle drive, presidio parkway, something that would not have happened were not for jose luis's dogged persistence and able to communicate what p3 is. because of his efforts it is a national model for how the public/private partnership can shift certain risks and responsibilities to the private sector and thereby enable on-time and on budget delivery of major capital projects. because of jose luis's leadership that project has become a model for not only the rest of the state but for the entire country. i really believe that what we have seen in that project is a testament to jose luis's leadership and talent. the second project i want to mention is brt, and jose luis has over the years led the authority to embrace brt has a faster, or flexible, more cost effective way to bring rail quality service to different corridors of the city. i know the adoption of the brt strategy by the authority happened in 2003. i want to commend jose luis for his leadership in bringing those projects, van brt and gary brt, to where they are taking into consideratio

at the same time as the bridge and at that time the presidio was an army and they didn't want civilians on their turf. and the road was built high. >> we need access and you have a 70 year-old facility that's inadequate for today's transportation needs. and in addition to that, you have the problem that it wasn't for site extenders. >> the rating for the high viaduct is a higher rating than that collapsed. and it was sapped quite a while before used and it was rusty before installed. >> a state highway through a federal national park connecting an independently managed bridge to city streets. this is a prescription for complication. >> it became clear unless there was one catalyst organization that took it on as a challenge, it wouldn't happen and we did that and for people to advocate. and the project has a structural rating of 2 out of 100. >> you can see the rusting reinforcing in the concrete when you look at the edges now. the deck has steel reinforcing that's corroded and lost 2/3's of its strength. >> this was accelerated in 1989 when the earthquake hit and cal came in and streng

golden the great fill an to 50 here in the city. >> >> >> asked me to speak before the presidio homeowners association and i did and do you know what happened after? a young woman identified herself as the head of a small family foundation and said "what do you need admiral?" and i need computers and pentium computers came out and were the fastest thing. i need those computers. all three buildings were outfitted by that foundation, by that woman. i had more computers than the police department and the fire department and before i had nothing and it was interesting. i said to the mayor -- mayor jordan how do i approach these people? how do i do it? and he said "well, john i heard you speak before. just throw one of your guilt trips on them" and it worked. i know time is running out. i will make this quick but i wanted you to know how we got here. it didn't happen. it wasn't magic and this building as the mayor told you was a direct result of a tragedy on 101 california street and went up in the building and the crazed gun man killed all those people and i asked to bui

, presidio park. obligation on that is fulfilled. we have a loan to pay back to mtc; a petition has been funds and i'm not good to advantage of that opportunitywith the board issued to provide muni would not hundred thousand for pedestrian improvement. the transportation program, it is a program that the transportation commission and mtc set up to target improvements for low-income community. the authority this past year had the opportunity to invest 4 million dollars. we also were able to concur on a number of capital projects and priorities here including some of the customer first projects that mta put out; important projects to improve both reliability, reduce travel time and offer real-time traffic information so people have more choices whether they want to wait for the bus or go somewhere else. this slide summarizes a lot. there are many fund programs, constantly programming and prioritizing, explaining to the sponsors the new rules. community projects, block grant projects; school grants. one of the new programs this year, many are familiar with, the one bay area grant progr

domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the first response and i think we are disturbed and it's like the knob hill gazette for lawyers but this was a bad article. >> thank you commissioner mazzucco. i would like to introduce nancy ro

two years ago i lived in presidio heights where i enjoys a nice home with my daughters and a view of the golden gate. when i decided to move to pacific heights in this particular building on jackson, one of the things that was really appealing as it is for all of these neighbors plus others who didn't have time to come because of the short notice was the fact we had views. some great, not all of them, but we had partial views of the water. we paid for those views. all of us paid for those views, okay? the proposed addition, not just the floor, because if you look at the plan, it's not just an additional flash, floor, but the solar panels. you are almost looking at adding two floors, not one. they block the water view and i know right to view not necessarily, but what about right to value? we pay taxes and we pay taxes on property and property is high because you have a view. well, with this thing we will no longer have any views. and the question also is addition to solar panels under the draft motion it says, "the project is desirable as in keeping with the neighborhood characte

as the first african american for mayor. so i worked for the presidio and i understand the department of interior's standards when it comes to a building. in this case i think the planning department and all of us who are listening and those who have come here to say something about this place is more what happens within the 4 walls of this building. so as has been stated, the compassion, feeding the poor, nobody's turned away, the other thing is that anybody who goes to this place gets large portions of the meals prepared, well prepared. so sam jordan was well respected. he always encouraged people who wanted to do something because he had the backing, diane feinstein has been there, willy brown has been there, some -- i think sammy davis junior went there once. so it's not famous people haven't visited it and it's not that sam jordan was very well known. i think in this case it's what has been happening and how his spirit has been kept alive by serving the poor. that's what we need, that's what we need in the bayview. we need people who are compassionate, people who do not fo
